The Victor Valley RC Flyers held its 'Buddy Box Day' on Saturday. Newbies had the opportunity to learn how to fly with experienced RC airplane pilots. The group is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the enjoyment, promotion and education of radio controlled models of all kinds and especially model aviation.


VVRCF was chartered by the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) in November 2002. VVRCF has grown from a small informal group of 12 to an organization of nearly 100 members.


Currently, the VVRCF flying field consists of a 550-by-50 foot asphalt runway. There is a helicopter pad and flying area and an open area for glider enthusiasts. The group is currently planning to add a car and truck race track and an area for the ever increasing popularity of what are commonly called Park Flyers or the smaller electric powered radio controlled aircraft.


The club's goal is to provide to the community a safe and controlled area for anyone that wishes to participate in the activities available at their field. There are experienced hobbyists that are available to help the newest and the youngest members of the community to learn the safe and proper way to operate radio controlled equipment.
